Lunch decision

Nice atmosphere. One waitress, which was alright since it was not busy on this Monday. Great food and fast service. Daily specials. The gyro was delicious. Portions not overwhelming. Will return.

Disinterested owner when a food handling safety issue was brought up. We were served raw chicken with no insight as to the public health risk this posed for the patrons. would advise staying away!

We had dinner tonight. Ordered the chicken souvlaki dinner- some of the pieces were RAW in the center. Told the waitress who offered to cook it. We advised her how dangerous raw chicken is- she spoke with the owner at the back, then came back to apologize. The owner NEVER came to apologize!! Unbelievable! We called her after getting home-...

This restaurant is amazing. The food is fantastic, the staff was amazing, and the armosphere was relaxing and romantic. The food is a little pricy, but well worth every penny!

There were no american choices, so if you are not looking for authentic greek food, don't stop here. But if you want greek.....they baked noodle casserole was fabulous. Don't forget to order the baklava for desert. One piece was more than enough for two, and so ooey gooey good!

Although they specialize in Mediterranean dishes, there are plenty of instantly-recognizable and tasty Canadian/American items on the menu. We will return next holiday.

Had a fantastic experience. Great food, great service and a fun evening. Went with a group of 8 and we enjoyed the ouzo, the Greek music and yelling OPA and clapping along. Huge portions. Our group had the flaming cheese (can't remember what it's called), ribs, zesty shrimp pasta, moussaka, chicken souvlaki, chicken parm and everyone enjoyed their meals. Would... More

This is still one of my favourite restaurants in the City, however, was recently disappointed in the lamb chop entree. I used to consistently order the lamb souvlaki which is no longer available and on the waiter's suggestion had previously tried the lamb chops which were excellent. This time except for one chop, the rest were very thinly sliced and... More

When sharing a romantic evening in Thunder Bay find your special path to Melizana. Great big platters ideal for sharing, end with a dessert named Vesuvius, excellent service accompanies your time in this alcove away from the busy traffic beyond the charcoal walls.
